the usurper by zimra
Nolofinwë Arakáno, second-in-line for the throne of an immortal king, never expected to be a ruler. The four conversations he had on the day he first became one.

Chieftain of the village by himring
Fingon wanders in Eastern Beleriand and comes across a long-lost relative.

my note: standalone story explaining Gil-Gilad. All you need to know from the overall arc is that Maedhros is pining and Fingon still oblivious. I like this Lalwen/Írimë.

From the Sun's First Rising by idrils_scribe
In the dead of Hithlum's icy winter a battered Maedhros restores what peace he can to himself and his people, much to his brothers' chagrin.

we build castles with our fears and sleep in them like kings by liveoakwithmoss
Idril is afraid. The fear was with her when the world went dark and dogged her steps across the Grinding Ice. The Glorious Battle did not slay it and Gondolin's high walls didn't keep it out.

Idril is afraid, but Idril has a politician's mask, a clever mind, a sword. Better than that, she had bold aunts and a wise mother - if anything will save her, it is they.

agony aunt by liveoakwithmoss
Írimë pursed her lips. “And you’re telling me…to see how I’ll react. Because I am such a good bellwether for people like your father. Or, Valar forefend, Fëanaro.”

The Price of Vengeance universe by encairion
In order: The Revolutionary and the Usurper (170k), The Secret Language Brother (27k), The Price of Vengeance (540k), Earendil on the Purchasing of Whores (14k), The Price of Duty (170k), The Vanyar's Rebellion (17K), The Price of Memory (140k), Lost Children of the Sun (61k), The Price of Vengeance II (400k), and Heralds of the Dawn (130k and counting).

My note: hopelessly addictive, surprisingly interesting worldbuilding and race/colonialism work, but also very old school slytherfen (elftrashfen?) in that many Good Guys are now Bad, and vice versa, and everyone is gay, also there's way more incest than I bargained for, and I thought I was in for a ton (why would you make unrelated characters super related to make them bang?), and certain female characters are Shrill/Bad/Mad (but there are redemptive arcs for most of them paying off by now admittedly. STILL. YOU COME AT GALADRIEL YOU BEST NOT MISS). Would I rec this? No. Would I admit to someone who respected me that I'd read it? No. Did I lose a week to this and gasp like a fish on dry land when I ran out of story? I did.

ONE AND A HALF MILLION WORDS

It's like the Saving Connor of elftrash only longer and it drags much less. And instead of everything being child abuse and torture everything is incest.

the importance of family by zopyrus
At the Mereth Aderthad, Lalwen wants all her family members to behave. Fingon wants them to actually like each other. Either way, will the House of Finwë ever pull it together enough to impress Doriath?
